Punkitude, Roxy Music and the Greasy Trucker's Party

A 1972-73 barn archive review from the golden age of rock fanzines. Title from thee great Hank Ballard and the Midnighters. On the first Roxy Music lp: "A mixture of intellectualism, punkitude and a healthy understanding of what rock 'n roll is all about." That just about sums it up brother. No comparisons to Sha Na Na here which is where some of the early critics lost the plot. Hawkwind excerpt from the Greasy Trucker's review possibly next time. Prize for who can guess the source.


  1. I should know since I sent this to you years ago! Does my answer count?

  2. PS-I believe there was another review at the time which did compare Roxy to Sha Na Na. Will have to search the archives to find it.
